I believe all dogs or pets are loyal if you treat them with respect and care. Some people wont get it and ask what is so special about this dog. I reccomend this place for all dog lovers and dog parents who treat their pets like family.

One of the most touching real life story in the world, this loyal dog kept going and waiting every day for the next nine years at Shibuya station for his owner Professor Ueno . Hachikō died in 1935 founded on a street in Shibuya

If you're a dog lover and you bawled through the movie, then Hachiko's statue is a must-visit. It stands right outside one of the exits before walking through the famous Shibuya Pedestrian Crossing.

The story of the loyal dog is nice and warming but the amount of tourists clustering around that area taking the same photos over and over again is quite a painful experience.

Hachiko was made famous in the film starring, amongst others, Richard Gere. Shibuya station entrance celebrates the enduring love and loyalty of the dog, and his life long wait for his owner to return. A 'must visit' for dog lovers the world over - the way only dog lovers will understand. A real pilgrimage.

This is right outside Shibuya Station (Hachiko Exit or Exit #8). It IS one of the popular meeting spots in Tokyo but, since it's so popular, there's so many people there it can become hard to find each other if you don't have a cellphone to communicate with each other. Therefore if you are meeting with friends and don't have... More

If you know the story, have seen the film or just want to see a statue of a lop eared Akita it's a cool statue. Be warned - it's busy here. Right outside the station and lots of smokers. Get in, get a photo, enjoy the dog and move along. It's a meeting place for many people and because of... More

This was a great experience and beautiful memory for me. I am a huge dog lover and if you did not get to watch Hachi the movie you must! This statue proves that loyalty lies forever, even in death. I only wish that he didn't have to wait so long to be reunited with his owner. RIP Hachiko! I am... More

I believe people whom swarmed to this attraction has read about the story of Hachiko. Purely here for photo taking as it is conveniently located in heart of Shibuya. Note that there might be crowd so be careful of your personal belongings. Japan is a safe country but it never hurts to be safe!

Located right next to the Shibuya train station and intersection. Great story of loyalty - one of my favorite places in Tokyo easy to visit here when you see the intersection. Go have a look for yourself...

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighbourhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
